The Autobianchi Giardiniera was a small car from the Italian automaker Autobianchi in the 1960s and 1970s
The Autobianchi Giardiniera is a small supermini type car produced by the Italian automaker Autobianchi, based on the Fiat 500 Giardiniera. It was available in various configurations: station wagon and van. Car was produced from 1970 to 1977. It was also marketed as the Autobianchi Bianchina Giardiniera. The assembly was transferred to the Desio house in the last months of 1967.
The Autobianchi brand at the beginning of 1968, three years after the launch of the Fiat 500 series F. In addition to the specifications of the F, excluding the modifications to the doors the Giardiniera adopted black air intake grilles and the exterior rear view mirror. The rear side windows, changed from sliding, two pieces, became openable one piece. In addition to the doors, a special feature of the Giardiniera was the rear hatch, which also included a portion of the roof, hinged on the left side. Both of these will be used until the end of production.
The Giardiniera was initially produced together with the Bianchina Panoramic. Alongside the commercial van variant with large load compartment by 1975 the sedan ceases to be produced, but the Giardiniera still continues as a utility until 1977.
